Since we now have nearly 23 hours of daylight I will start a bead art piece using tons of tiny beads! This piece is approximately 9 inches by 12 inches. I spent one day getting the foundation together and drawing the basic outlines. I am using size 11/0, 13/0, 15/0, and the smallest so far are the size 22/0 vintage Italian “greasy” beads used on the birch trees Follow my progress, ask questions, leave remarks… it’s going to take awhile to complete this one. I plan to spend as many days outside enjoying our short summer as I can. I can bead on rainy days.
I love the feel of Ndebele chain. I won’t be doing it for a while after making 26 inches of it with size 11/0 seed beads… in white. She is kinda cute tho. She needs a name, ideas welcomed.
My latest bead art piece. This measures approximately 4.5 inches in diameter. I am having fun with this smaller size and all of the new Alaska animals I have gathered to play with.
I am using a mix of bead sizes in this piece, so placement is a little more time consuming than usual. but I love to use my tiny 22/0 beads.
I have been beading busy! Yes, beading busy. I have a new show in Feb. just set up for that today. Will get pics up soon. I also have 1 piece in an invitational show, and I am working on 4 pieces for a show in March. Whew.
I think now is a good time to start another follow along project.
Just a few pictures that I took at midnight 6-16-16. One end of my road had the setting sun and the other end of the road had the nearly full moon. Love Alaska!
